The retailer Beauty Brands — now under the direction of former Ulta Beauty chief executive officer Lyn Kirby — is adding numerous labels to its assortment as it vies for a larger share of the beauty business.
Kirby, who holds the title of ceo and who is part of a team that bought a controlling interest in the company last year, is taking advantage of an opportunity to upgrade the selection, said industry observers. She executed a similar strategy while at Ulta, expanding the assortment from drugstore fare to premium brands. The timing is fortuitous, as a handful of retailers, such as Henri Bendel, are exiting the beauty category.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
